Leaked Google Pixel 4a (5G) details confirm that it will have a larger screen, less RAM and a smaller battery than the Pixel 5
Roland Quandt has revealed the specifications of the Pixel 4a (5G), and it is essentially a larger version of the Pixel 5 with a few cutbacks. According to Quandt, the Pixel 4a (5G) will have a 6.2-inch OLED screen, which would be 0.2-inches larger than the supposed screen size of the Pixel 5. However, the Pixel 4a (5G) will have a 60 Hz panel instead of the 90 Hz one that will be present on the Pixel 5.
The screen will also have a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels, which will be covered in Gorilla Glass 3. This resolution combined with a 6.2-inch panel would yield a pixel density of 413 PPI, slightly lower than the 432 PPI of the Pixel 5.
As expected, the Pixel 4a (5G) will have a Snapdragon 765G chipset and 128 GB of non-expandable storage. The device will only be available with 6 GB of RAM though, another stepdown from the 8 GB in the Pixel 5. Similarly, the Pixel 4a (5G) will have a 3,885 mAh battery and will not support wireless charging. Conversely, the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 will share the same 12.2 MP primary, 16 MP ultra-wide and 8 MP front-facing cameras.
Google has already effectively announced that the Pixel 4a (5G) will cost €499 in the Eurozone, US$499 and £499 in the UK. By contrast, the Pixel 5 will retail for €629, according to multiple leaks. So, the Pixel 4a (5G) will be a cheaper and larger than the Pixel 5 with almost identical specifications, save for 2 GB less RAM and an inferior display.
